Will Smith is not the least bit apologetic for lightly smacking an overly affectionate male journalist.
“We’re doing an interview, and he says, ‘I’m your biggest fan. Can I have a hug?’ and I go to give this joker a hug, and he tries to lean in to like kiss me,” Will told David Letterman.
“It’s just awkward, Dave,” said Will, who subsequently smacked the Ukrainian reporter in the face.
While some suggested that Will’s reaction bordered on homophobic, many seemed to completely understand why the married man didn’t want to lock lips with a total stranger.
Some even commented that Will was far too kind.
